Amapola Mexican Food Market in South Central LA

This place was incredible. I went to the original (and now smallest) location in S. Central LA at the corner of Compton and Florence. A place I confess I had never been. I went at around 11am on a Sunday morning and it was still packed even though it was raining!

Doesn't anyone go to church anymore?

We were sent there by Ramiro Arvizu for their crispy pork taquitos. At least 50 people were waiting in line but it was worth it. 3 for $1.25! They also have an incredible selection of  meat, masa, mole and special baked goods.
